Try your luck and throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, Rome

The Trevi Fountain in Rome is probably one of the most famous fountains in the world. It looks like new but actually the fountain already existed in the 16th century, the renovations to this shape were completed in1762, the works lasted for 30 years. How is this possible 30 years of work to renovate a fountain? You can not imagine how many people want to see this landmark. So many visitors’ throw coins in the water, make a whish and hope for good fortune. Maybe it is normal that you see beautiful women in Rome, but the most famous goddess is Anita Ekberg in de movie “La Dolce Vita” from 1960.

De Trevi fontein in Rome is waarschijnlijk de meeste beroemde fontein van de wereld. Ze ziet er nog steeds als nieuw uit, maar bestaat reeds van de 16de eeuw. De renovaties om de fontein in deze vorm te krijgen hebben 30 jaar geduurd en werden voltooid in 1762. Je kan je niet inbeelden hoeveel mensen er hier muntjes in het water werpen om hun wensen te laten uitkomen. Veel geluk toegewenst. Misschien is het normaal mooie vrouwen in Rome tegen te komen, maar de beroemdste Godin is Anita Ekberg uit de film “La Dolce Vita” van 1960.

  3. Wow.. What a crowd over there.. I have no doubt it took 30 years due to the intricate designs and statues near the fountain.. If the crowd wasn't so big, this would be a very nice place to relax and unwind..
